Latin for local and family historians

Court Book SA IMG47629

Do you find it difficult to make progress with your research when you find phrases or even whole documents are in Latin?

This course is designed to help with a basic introduction to the language and examples of the common types of words and phrases used in a variety of documents from parish registers and account books to title deeds.

No previous knowledge of Latin is needed, and all materials are supplied.
